Maybe for WP but cracking a good password (MineP@ssword1!) would be long by brute force but true about changing all defaults when installing something. Checking the logs for 401's would show activity.
simply bots guessing passwords
I still say search for the initial cr[h]ack.

After that he got all the websites I have under the same IP and used the same password to log into the admin panel, fortunately I use different passwords on each of my websites except from one that got infected instantly.
After using backups for ALL of websites I went on and updated the timthumb file and create new admin, ftp, email and mysql passwords for ALL my websites.
